Microsoft test manager - recycling test cases



  • I have been trying lately to better make use of my previous Test scenarios in Microsoft`s Test Manager.

    What I am trying to do is create a set of generic test cases which I can easily pick off and reuse on future releases/updates. As you might well know, if I try to use one of those TC in future releases/sprint PBIs what I`ll end up doing is using that TC and updating it(not copying it or clone it). So if I switch to that root TestCase it will be updated as I did on the current one(hope it makes sense so far).

    So, is there any way I can recycle the TestCases as above? I have not poked around Shared Steps, but is it what I`m looking for?

    Thanks guys!



  • There are a few ways to do this, one would be:

    You could create your template list of test cases in an excel file and import them to TFS using http://tcmimport.codeplex.com/

    You can also export an existing list to use with http://exporttfs2excel.codeplex.com/

    Another way would be to create copies of the test cases.
